Concerning Austria: https://industriemagazin.at/a/technik-aus-oesterreich-soll-erstmals-auf-den-mars
The article do not refer explicitly to the TW-1 mission. But it is saying that a camera mast built by Ruag Space Austria will land onboard a rover on Mars in 2020. It seems that a similar mast is planned for the ESA ExoMars Rover.

That article is from before the Exomars rover was formally pushed to 2022.

CNES was involved with the Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy instrument on the rover. ESA's Estrack ground stations will provide telemetry/communications support.

That covers all the logos.

According to one insider source don't expect any official live coverage of the launch.  :-X

Seeing that it's from Wenchang people will still be there to watch the launch nearby & maybe even stream it like the last few launches, but there's no promise how close people can get to or that streams won't disappear mysteriously.

Expect LM-5B test flight-like coverage in the best case, LM-7A test flight-like coverage in the worst scenario.

Just saying all LM-5 series have live coverage both TV&INTERNET (5B is an internet stream only with the worst live coverage I have seen), 霸男 is unreliable this time around lol. Also, CCTV is broadcasting a lot of initial heating Mars videos all day, it`s really hard to believe no live stream at all...
So I believe the worst case is a 5B style live stream. Best is still a CCTV live stream. If it happens we could see the first 4K launch live stream? maybe.
On the bright side, they are saying 'still better than H2A' on Weibo they are complaining Mitsubishi playing an advertisement for like 40 mins and announcing the launch success.

I guess they missed the H2A public announcement of launch time and actual live-stream of the launch? ???

Yuanwang 6 tracking ship left port today. This is expected to be to support the Tianwen-1 launch, though not stated (and interestingly will support missions will in the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic Oceans across one, 100+ day outing).
Where will the ship be located for the Tianwen-1 launch?  Somewhere down-range in the Pacific?

I dunno, it seems Mitsubishi lived on Bilibli or Douyu but played Mitsubishi advertisement for 40 mins instead of the flight graph showing on youtube stream after lift-off.

Moderator: Nipping this in the bud.  Not here.

If you want to discuss the quality/quantity of Hope launch coverage, do so in that launch thread--keeping to our forum community discussion standards.
